Flowerpot cottage -next chapter


Today I clad nearly the whole cottage plus the chimneys in paperclay(thank you Patty, thank you Sue and thank you Rik Pierce for the tutorials I found, and big thanks to Bea for her beautiful workshop coming with this kit). I also made the brickwork - well, I can assure you that every quarterscale bricklayer should be heartily ashamed( or heartily drunk) to deliver this kind of work. As long as I don't use a magnifier to look at it, it will be fine, though, and besides, this kind of cottage is not really neat, either.
Since the paperclay has to dry before I can get on, I will leave it for now. Hope everything will be dry enough tomorrow to get on with it.
As you can see, Floris is still watching me. He loves me mini-ing.

  1. OH Elly!! This is going to look fabulous, I can tell already! Your brickwork looks perfect! This is fun to watch the progress - can't wait to see more. :)

  2. Menos mal que tienes que parar para el secado. Porque sería posible que tú lo acabaras en dos dias.
    Está muy bien estos principios.
    Besos Clara

  3. Elly there's no better way to spend your recovery time than by mini-ing! See - paper clay isn't daunting at all lol!
